It'll be very interesting to see where Microsoft prices it. If they're smart, they price it the same as the PS4 Pro, eat the loss on hardware and try to claw back market share.

But since it's Microsoft, I'm going to guess it's just as likely that they go "Well, it costs us $650 to make (number listed in an article I read), so we'll sell for $700."

So, hmmm.

Pretty much a guarantee in any large case isn't it?

Which only showcases how ridiculous it is. If Oculus wins the second one, then Zenimax will go "We don't like this verdict. We want a new trial." Each and every single one of these trials cost taxpayer money.

Eventually they wind up on the Xth circuit court of appeals, and some even before scotus. So these large corporation vs corporation lawsuits need to just be held directly before the circuit court. Stop wasting time and money with this back and forth shit.

So out of curiosity, what do they mean by smurfing? Deliberately losing?

Dylan is, from what I understand, a sci-fi themed game, it is sort of Destiny-style, takes some elements from The Division, it has like MMO elements," he explains. "Someone described it as a 'semi-MMO'.

OMG I'M SO EXCITED.

Many times people don't know what they want.

After the Kinect fiasco on the 360 (Yes, I know it sold well, but it had little attach rate, and few games were developed/sold for it later), people were pretty damn clear they didn't want Kinect. Microsoft, always knowing better, decided to force Kinect down everyone's throats.

We all know how well that went.

Sue the everloving shit out of them. Sure, it's legal, but dragging a 69 year old man violently off a plane to the point where he has blood streaming down his face? Fuck that noise.

Not sure what Gearbox was expecting. You can't deliver an ultimatum demanding far-reaching systemic changes and expect G2A to comply within a day.

This was simply a PR stunt to help boost Gearbox's public image.

Gearbox gave them at least 30 days. G2A must have rejected the demands outright.

I'm pretty sure Gearbox gave them like eight hours? They made their ultimatums on the day before the reclip edition went live and said "This all has to be committed to before the game comes out!"

Even with the most goodwill in the world, no company is going to make major changes like that in the space of a single business day. That's just not how business works.

In the end, I'm pretty sure this was Gearbox's plan all along, as some weird way to generate buzz for themselves. Randy Pitchford is a giant fucking moron, but there's no way he genuinely didn't know what a shithole G2A is.
